By the way, did you know that every okonomiyaki restaurant in Hiroshima has its unique version of Hiroshima-yaki? Its taste, smell, and visual will completely satisfy all of your senses. If you have a chance to visit Hiroshima, for which Hiroshima-yaki would you go?

The secret to the delicious okonomiyaki at Denko Sekka Hatsukaichi Branch is that they cook their okonomiyaki without pressing down on them, so the air within traps the sweetness of the vegetables inside. The result is a super fluffy batter that envelops the original umami (Japanese savory taste) of the ingredients. Enjoy the perfect balance between this batter and their chewy noodles!
